Skyworks releases new front-end modules for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) applications

12 June 2020

Skyworks has extended its portfolio of front-end modules (FEMs) designed for retail, carrier and enterprise Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) with the introduction of SKY85334-11 and SKY85750-11, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz FEMs respectively.

These modules offer best-in-class linearity, power dissipation and efficiency for access points, routers and gateways where regulatory, thermals or power-over-ethernet (PoE) limitations demand low current consumption. Packaged in a compact, 16-pin 3 x 3 mm land grid array, these highly integrated FEMs incorporate switching, low-noise amplifier (LNA) with bypass and power amplifier (PA).Source: SkyworksSource: Skyworks

The SKY85750-11 is a highly efficient, highly integrated, 5 GHz front-end module (FEM) incorporating a 5 GHz single-pole, double-throw transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a 5 GHz LNA with bypass, and a 5 GHz PA with integrated digital pre-distortion (DPD) coupler intended for 802.11ax applications and systems.

The 2.4 GHz SKY85334-11 FEM incorporates a 2.4 GHz single-pole, double-throw T/R switch, a 2.4 GHz LNA with bypass, and a 2.4 GHz PA with integrated DPD coupler intended for 802.11ax applications and systems.

The devices offer very high linearity to support 1024 QAM with multi-user, multiple input, multiple output applications and low power consumption, which is ideal for PoE applications in high density deployments. They are also FCC compliant for harmonics to reduce post FEM losses and improve overall performance.
